The Lake District School of Food & Wine
If you’ve booked a food tour then why not learn the skills at the same time. You could spend one day indulging yourself with gastronomic delights in fine dining restaurants. Another enjoying a cream tea aboard the steam railway. Then crack open a bottle of wine and join a culinary workshop.

Woodmatters Bush Craft and Wood Courses
Learn the skills required to survive out in rural England. Produce something stunning as part of a family day out and find inspiration within the local woodlands. Great outdoor adventure where you will feel at one with nature.
If you prefer to stay indoors, then you can get even more creative with this art workshop. Paint your own mug or have a go on the potters wheel. You don’t need to book in advance either, so if you’ve purchased a travel pass for the week just hop on the nearby public transport and turn up.
